Morgan Creek Winery
In the year 2000, Charles Brammer, Jr. was a junior in college when his recently retired father, Charles Brammer, Sr., began talking about dabbling in winemaking, using the muscadine grapes and other fruits grown on the family’s farm in Harpersville. They began laying the groundwork with his mother, Mary, and by the time Brammer graduated, Morgan Creek Vineyards and Winery was already up and running. In 2001, they produced around 600 cases; by 2007 Morgan Creek produced some 15,000 with the wines sold in some 400 stores throughout Alabama, including most major grocery chains and wine shops.
“We specialize in muscadine and fruit wines—semi-sweet to sweetish wines—and nobody has really done those commercially,” Brammer explains. Moreover, he says he had no interest in competing with legions of chardonnays, cabernets and more traditional wines already crowding the shelves in stores, and wanted to focus on a product that would be truly native to the area. “One of our clichés is, grits don’t come from New York, and chardonnay doesn’t come from Alabama,” he says.
The warmth of the winery’s tasting room offers visitors an intimate atmosphere while they enjoy our wine varieties. Everyone from the new wine enthusiast to the seasoned connoisseur is sure to find a selection they enjoy. The beautiful vineyards and scenery offer the perfect getaway.
